REPORT MADE BY CITY CLERK AS TO DOCU-

follows : 

Proclamations of Mayor. 

Proclamations (filed January 14, 1949) of Honorable 
Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, reading respectively as 
follows : 

March of Dimes. 

Whereas, infantile paralysis is a dread disease 
that annually takes its toll in the Chicago area; 
and 

Whereas, last year, polio struck our nation with 
intense fury, taking the lives of thousands of little 
children and many adults ; and 

Whereas, during the past six polio seasons more 
than 100,000 Americans have been stricken by this 
vicious disease; and 

Whereas, the Cook County Chapter of the Na- 
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and all 
other Chapters throughout the country were at 
hand to aid those stricken; and 

Whereas, in so doing last year the Foundation 
exhausted its epidemic emergency aid fund; and 

Whereas, the 1949 March of Dimes, to be con- 
ducted from January 14 to 31, provides the only 
means by which the Cook County Chapter and the 
National Foundation may continue to fight infan- 
tile paralysis, by aiding those stricken, while financ- 
ing research to find a preventive or cure; and 

Whereas, infantile paralysis is certain to strike 
again this year, and adequate resources must be 
available to meet its menace; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do urgently appeal to each and 
every resident to join zealously during the period 
from January 14 to 31, 1949, in making this year's 
March of Dimes the most successful in Chicago 
history. 

Dated this 5th day of January, A. D. 1949. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

Photography Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, photography is an enjoyable and useful 
art which has contributed greatly to the advance- 
ment of culture, science, and industry, and has 
provided a livelihood for thousands of technicians, 
retailers, distributors and manufacturers; and 

Whereas, great numbers of our citizens have 
adopted photography as an absorbing hobby for all 
members of the family; and 



Whereas, Chicago has played an important role 
in the promotion and development of this new 
industry; and 

Whereas, a public display of prize-winning photos 
in a national contest, in which several Chicagoans 
gained distinction, will be held from February 9 
to 16 in the photography salon of Marshall Field 
and Company, under the sponsorship of the various 
branches of the photography industry; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
period from February 9 to February 16, 1949, as 
Photography Week in Chicago, and call the special 
attention of the people of our city to the national 
contest exhibit being held on those days. 

Dated this 14th day of January, A. D. 1949. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 
v Mayor. 

Negro History Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, the second week in February has long 
been observed as Negro History Week in recogni- 
tion of the achievements of the Negro race in 
America; and 

Whereas, a profound influence has been exerted 
by the Negro on our country's cultural, political, 
and economic growth, many of our most dis- 
tinguished scientists, educators, artists, and civic 
leaders being of the Negro race ; and 

Whereas, these accomplishments reflect the inter- 
dependence of all races and creeds in the develop- 
ment of our democratic heritage; and 

Whereas, appreciation for the capacities, talents, 

civil and human rights of all minority groups leads 

to understanding, mutual respect, and harmony, 

whose benefits accrue to all the people and enrich 

• the lives of men everywhere ; and 

Whereas, the freedom and inalienable rights of 
the majority of the citizens are secure only when 
the rights of the minority are likewise secure and 
given lawful and equal opportunity to be heard; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
from February 6 to February 13, 1949, as Negro 
History Week in Chicago, and do urge the people 
of Chicago to cooperate with the National Negro 
Museum and Historical Foundation and similar 
organizations in highlighting the role played by the 
Negro in the past and living history of America. 

Dated this 3rd day of January, A. D. 1949. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

Chicago, Illinois 

Dear Alderman Merriam: 

I take pleasure in submitting herewith our re- 
port on Integration of the Municipal Tuberculosis 
Sanitarium and the Department of Health. This 
report has been prepared in accordance with your 
acceptance, on behalf of the Subcommittee, of our 
proposal dated May 28, 1948. 

This report is concerned principally with two 
questions: (1) Should the Municipal Tuberculosis 



3672 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 14, 1949 



Sanitarium be placed under the jurisdiction of the 
Chicago Board of Health or of the State of Illinois ? 
(2) How can the MTS and the City Department of 
Health be effectively integrated ? The following rec- 
ommendations are presented as a result of a study 
of factors bearing on these two questions : 

1. Tuberculosis control within Chicago should 
be administered by the Board of Health. 

2. No part of the tuberculosis control program 
should be transferred to, or become an admin- 
istrative responsibility of, the State of Illi- 
nois. 

3. The State of Illinois should contribute finan- 
cially to the tuberculosis control program in 
Chicago. 

4. Combination of the two agencies, the Munic- 
ipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium and the De- 
partment of Health, can best be accomplished 
by amendment to the Glackin Act to pro- 
vide that the Board of Health serve as the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium Board and 
that all powers and duties of the Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium Board be vested in 
the Board of Health. 

5. The effective merger of the two agencies 
would require administrative action, especially 
along the following lines: 

a. Consolidation of the field nursing forces of 
the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium and 
of the Department of Health in a Division 
of Public Health Nursing. 

b. Establishment in the Department of Health 
of a Division of Tuberculosis Control. 

c. Establishment of a Division of Hospital 
Management charged with responsibility 
for the management of the nonmedical serv- 
ices of the Municipal Tuberculosis San- 
itarium, the Chicago Contagious Disease 
Hospital, and the Intensive Treatment 
Center. 

d. Consolidation of bookkeeping, payrolling, 
and related record-keeping activities in a 
Division of Administrative Services. 

This report was prepared by John D. Corcoran, 
Russell D. Johnson, and Edmond F. Ricketts, all of 
the staff of Public Administration Service. 

We wish to acknowledge the cooperation ex- 
tended to the survey staff by the officials and em- 
ployees of the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium 
and the Board of Health. 

Yours very truly, 

H. G. Pope, 
Executive Director.

An authoritative health survey of Chicago and 
Cook County, in its discussion of tuberculosis con- 
trol facilities in the area, pointed out that Chicago 
had the next highest death rate from tuberculosis 
during 1939-41 of the five cities having more than 
one million population, the death rate per 100,000 
population during that period being 45.4. 1 With 
respect to its nonwhite residents, Chicago's record 
is much worse. During the period 1939-41, the 
death rate for this group was 250.1 per 100,000 
population. 2 Of the 39 cities having a nonwhite 
population of 20,000 or more with 10 per cent of 
the total population enumerated as nonwhite, only 
one city had a higher tuberculosis death rate than 
Chicago. Medical authorities have described the 
prevalence of tuberculosis in Chicago as being of 
epidemic proportions. Certainly it is clear that the 
situation is one of great urgency and immense pro- 
portions. 

For some time the City of Chicago, through the 
Board of Health and the Municipal Tuberculosis 
Sanitarium, has been engaged in carrying on a 
tuberculosis control program. To the extent that 
tuberculosis still exists on a major scale in Chi- 
cago, it can be said that the City has been less 
than completely successful in its fight against the 
disease. A successful approach, then, to tubercu- 
losis control in Chicago requires a fuller and more 
effective use of all resources available. 

II. City-State Relationships in Chicago's 
Tuberculosis Control. 

The central question of City-State relationships 
in tuberculosis control is that of what part of the 
responsibility for operating and financing the pro- 
gram should be borne respectively by the City and 
by the State. A sound solution to the problem of 
providing an effective anti-tuberculosis program 
for Chicago must be related to the magnitude of 
the problem, to accepted standards and procedures 
for the elimination of tuberculosis, and to the re- 
sources which can be brought to bear in the con- 
summation of the program.

Responsibility for Operating the Tuberculosis Con- 
trol Program. 

A tuberculosis control program for a community 
should be characterized by two fundamental prin- 
ciples : 

1. The program should embrace, and provide 
for complete administrative and operational 
integration of, all phases of tuberculosis con- 
trol, including case-finding, treatment (out- 
patient and home care as well as hospitaliza- 
tion), and education. 

2. For maximum effectiveness, as well as econ- 
omy in operations, the total tuberculosis con- 
trol program -should be integrated with the 
other phases of the community public health 
program. 

The effective control and eventual eradication of 
tuberculosis depend upon the provision and co- 
ordination of all known anti-tuberculosis tech- 
niques. First, all cases of tuberculosis existing in 
the community must be found. Techniques have 
been developed whereby mass case-finding pro- 
grams can be conducted among the most susceptible 
population groups and even among the population 
at large. Particular stress is placed on examining 
for tuberculosis all contacts of persons known to 
have the disease. The second requirement of a suc- 
cessful anti-tuberculosis program is the prompt 
isolation and treatment of persons found to be 
tuberculous. A third important requirement of a 
successful approach to the problem of tuberculosis 
involves the education of the public concerning the 
disease and its characteristics so that they will 
cooperate in, and support measures aimed at, its 
prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, 
and other related measures for its control. 

The approach to the control of tuberculosis is 
similar to that used in the control of other pre- 
ventable diseases which menace the nublic health, 
and involves much the same types of resources in 
staff and in physical facilities. In addition, the 
case-finding effort with respect to tuberculosis 
should be coordinated closely with the case-finding 
activities of the general public health program; 
and the nursing and clinical services, educational 
programs and other activities which are common 
to both tuberculosis control and general public 
health work should be as fully integrated as pos- 
sible. 

Primary responsibility for public health activi- 
ties in Chicago has been assigned to and assumed 
by the City of Chicago, and the public health 
activities of the State of Illinois have been con- 
fined to the development of standards; the pro- 
mulgation of rules and regulations relating to 
environmental sanitation, protection of public water 
supplies, sewage disposal, and related fields; and 
the provision of advisory assistance to local health 
agencies. In tuberculosis control, the State, through 
its Denartmen't of Public Health, promulgates rules 
and regulations designed to prevent the spread of 
the disease by requiring the isolation of cases of 
tuberculosis and the prompt examination of con- 
tacts of such cases. The State also establishes regu- 
lations affecting the distribution or sale of milk, 
milk products, and other foodstuffs where danger 
exists of the contamination of such foods because 
of the presence of tuberculosis or other commu- 
nicable diseases. Beyond these functions, the State 
in the past has assumed no Drogram responsibility 
for tuberculosis control in Chicago. 

Should responsibility for operating any part of 
the tuberculosis control urogram in Chicago be 
assigned to the State of Illinois? Since (1) no part 
of tuberculosis control can be divorced from the 



other parts; (2) the tuberculosis control program 
should be fully integrated with the general public 
health program ; ( 3 ) primary responsibility for the 
public health program is vested with the City of 
Chicago, then it can only be concluded that no part 
of the responsibility for operating the tuberculosis 
control program in Chicago should be assigned to 
the State of Illinois. 

Financing the Tuberculosis Control Program. 

Several reasons argue for some financial support 
of the Chicago tuberculosis control program by the 
State of Illinois. 

1. The State has an interest in the effectiveness 
of Chicago's tuberculosis program. "The tu- 
berculosis bacillus knows no political boun- 

■ daries" is a slight adaptation of an old plati- 
tude among public health men. Just as Chi- 
cago cannot erect a wall which will keep 
tuberculosis from entering the city, the rest 
of the state is powerless to keep the disease 
penned up within the city limits of Chicago. 
So long as tuberculosis continues as a major 
public health menace to the citizens of Illinois 
who are living in Chicago, it will continue as 
a menace to the health of the state's citizens 
who live outside the city. 

2. The State has already recognized some re- 
sponsibility for financing a share of the tu- 
berculosis control program in Chicago, as well 
as in the rest of Illinois. The State has rec- 
ognized some responsibility in the hospital 
care of the tuberculous outside the Chicago 
area, as evidenced by the granting of financial 
aid in the amount of $52,168 for the fiscal 
year 1947-48, and $100,000 for the fiscal year 
1948-49 to local tuberculous sanitaria and 
sanitarium boards. In addition, the General 
Assembly, through the approval on July 8, 
1947, of House Bill 280, provided for the 
establishment of state tuberculosis sanitaria. 
It is apparent that the Assembly intended to 
limit to some extent at least the State's re- 
sponsibility for hospital care of patients at 
these sanitaria after they were established 
inasmuch as the legislation directs the State 
Department of Public Health to fix a per diem 
cost of the care and treatment of mtients 
and makes liable for such costs the local juris- 
diction in which the patient resided at time 
of admission. 

As part of a capital improvements program 
(Senate Bill No. 662, Approved July 21, 
1947), the Assembly appropriated money in 
accordance with the provisions of the above 
act for the building of several tuberculosis 
hospitals. One hospital is to be constructed 
at Mt. Vernon at a total cost at completion 
of $850,000, and another is to be located in 
Carroll County, also to cost $850,000. The 
Assembly took cognizance of Chicago's plight 
by the appropriation of $5,000,000 for the 
construction and equipment of a tuberculosis 
hospital to be located in Cook Countv. Tuber- 
culosis research as a state responsibility re- 
ceived recognition at the same time to the 
extent of an appropriation in the amount of 
$340,000 for the construction in Chicago of a 
building for an Institute of Tuberculosis Re- 
search and Control. It is anticipated that the 
hospital in Cook County will, when completed, 
be operated by the State Department of 
Health. 

3. Existing state-local fiscal arrangements in 
Illinois suggest some greater state respon- 
sibility for the financing of local government 
services. The City's total appropriation for 



3674 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL—CHICAGO 



January 14, 1949 



the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium and 
the Board of Health for 1948 amounts to 
$8,914,683. For the 9-year period from 1940 
to 1948, the total appropriations for these 
two agencies aggregated over $58,000,000. 
The U. S. Public Health Service, in its recent 
survey report, indicates that a major addi- 
tional outlay is needed for anti-tuberculosis 
work in particular and for public health work 
in general. 

The State of Illinois, has greater financial 
resources than the City of Chicago by reason 
of the fact that the State has preempted cer- 
tain revenue sources — including such highly- 
productive sources as sales and gasoline 
taxes. The State must assume, along with its 
greater resources, a concomitant responsi- 
bility for the financing of public services. 

The pattern of state financial support of tu- 
berculosis control programs is established by 
the practices of other states. Other large 
states use varying methods of participating 
in anti-tuberculosis work. Among these 
methods are: 

a. State operation of one or more tuberculosis 
hospitals, as in New York and Indiana. 

b. Grants-in-aid or financial assistance to 
cities and counties which operate their own 
tuberculosis hospitals, as in California. 

c. State operation of one or more tuberculosis 
hospitals and financial assistance to locally 
operated hospitals, as in Michigan, Mis- 
souri, and Pennsylvania. 

The State of Michigan during the fiscal 
year 1947-48, paid $2.50 per patient per day 
toward the support of patients in local tuber- 
culosis sanitaria; the 1948-49 budget proposal 
of the Governor provides for a grant of $3.50 
per patient per day. The policy in Michigan, 
as stated by its Governor, is that the state 
should pay about 50 per cent of the cost of 
hospital care. The State of California employs 



a sliding scale of aid based on the number of 
patients; in fiscal 1947-48, the assistance to 
local hospitals amounted to $2.50 per patient 
per day for the first 100 patients, $2.00 per 
day for the second 100 patients, and $1.50 
per day for all additional patients. 

In addition, all of the states listed above, 
as well as the State of Illinois, expend vary- 
ing amounts of state and federal funds in 
so-called field services, case-finding, labora- 
tory, and related services, educational pro- 
grams, and the like. Table IV shows the 
annual expenditures by state for each type of 
program. Table V presents an analysis of 
state expenditures for tuberculosis control in 
relation to population.

A definite plan for State financial assistance 
to local tuberculosis control activities which is 
equitable to all areas of the State should be de- 
veloped by state and local fiscal and health offi- 
cials and presented to the next session of the 
General Assembly. The plan that has the virtue 
of the most simplicity — i.e., a flat payment for 
each patient-day of hospitalization — may be ob- 
jectionable because it sometimes encourages hos- 
pitalization in excess of that required and it 
tends to favor hospitalization at the expense of 
other phases of the total tuberculosis control 
programs.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

One of the most feasible plans for State finan- 
cial assistance involves State grants-in-aid ad- 
ministered by and under the control of the State 
Department of Public Health. Under such a plan 
the Director of Public Health would determine, 
on the basis of periodic surveys, the amount of 
state financial assistance needed for the biennium 
in each locality having a tuberculosis sanitarium. 
The Director would recommend for approval by 
the General Assembly an appropriation sufficient 
to meet the needs for the ensuing period. The 
Assembly in accepting or modifying the Direc- 
tor's recommendation would determine as a 
policy matter the State's responsibility for the 
institutional care of the tuberculous. The dis- 
tribution of such funds as the Assembly may 
appropriate to any tuberculosis institution, 
whether it be the Chicago Municipal Tubercu- 
losis Sanitarium or an out-state hospital, would 
properly be contingent on approval by the State 
Health Director of a request for such assistance. 
The Director's approval should be based on com- 
pliance with such reasonable budgetary and 
management standards as he may determine to 
be essential. 

III. Integration of MTS and the Department 
of Health. 

As stated earlier, tuberculosis control work is 
only one aspect of an over-all public health pro- 
gram, and it should be given such consideration 
in public health program planning and administra- 
tion as the magnitude of the tuberculosis problem 
and its relation to other health problems warrant. 
The coordination of tuberculosis control and other 
public health activities essential to a high level of 
municipal public health can be obtained only if the 
whole program is planned, developed, and adminis- 
tered under one head. 

The Board of Health and MTS are tied together 
to a limited extent at the present time, but the 
relationship is not the best one from the point of 
view of long-term consolidation of program activi- 
ties and resources. The present situation, with re- 
spect to the integration of the two agencies, can 
be described in terms of what has and what has 
not been done thus far. 

The President of the Board of Health serves as 
a member of the MTS Board. His appointment was 
approved September 23, 1947, and it expires July 
1, 1950. It is reasonably safe to assume that, so 
long as the present appointee serves in his dual 
capacity, there will be at least cooperation between 
the two agencies. What might happen in the future 
under other circumstances can be foreseen on the 
basis of what has happened at various times in the 
past. There is at the present time some slight joint 
use of facilities: the headquarters of the MTS 
clinic bureau is now located in the Board of Health 
building. The Board of Health laboratories do some 
diagnostic work in connection with tuberculosis. 
The Director of Nurses of the Board of Health is 
on loan to MTS for the purpose of strengthening 
its nursing program. Further, the Board of Health 
assists the MTS in enforcing hospitalization of 
cases by assignment of a quarantine officer charged 
with responsibility for seeing that state and city 
regulations with respect to communicable diseases 
are observed. The above arrangements are make- 
shift because of the present legal independence of 
MTS, and they are possible only because of the 
present relationship and good will of the two 
boards. The steps taken lack the degree of per- 
manence which might be expected to accompany 
an arrangement based on statutory authority. 

The areas in which consolidation has not been 
attained are more striking. Perhaps the outstand- 



ing weakness of the present situation is the use of 
two independent field nursing forces to do a job 
which could be better done by one combined force. 
Under the present system both an MTS nurse and 
a nurse on the staff of the Board of Health fre- 
quently call at the same home, one on behalf of a 
tuberculosis case in the family and the other in 
connection with the health of the rest of the 
family. Further deficiencies are also apparent : each 
agency has its own complete business management 
staff; the Board of Health is not presently drawing 
on the knowledge of institutional management 
possessed by the superintendent of nonmedical 
services at the Sanitarium ; and personnel manage- 
ment to the extent that it exists is not coordinated 
by the two agencies. 

Program for Effective Integration. 

Effective consolidation of the two programs now 
carried on independently by MTS and the Board 
of Health should extend to both legislative and 
administrative action. Such action would seem to 
give the best promise of permitting the organiza- 
tion, planning, and conduct of a sound, well- 
rounded public health program for Chicago. Some 
administrative action, however, can proceed inde- 
pendently of legislative action. Evidences of the 
beginning of that approach are provided in the 
exercise of the appointing power by the Mayor 
and City Council which has resulted in the present 
tie between the two boards. Pending appropriate 
legislation, the Mayor and City Council can bring 
the two agencies into even closer relationship in 
the future by making additional dual appointments 
to both boards as appointments of present board 
members expire. 

Legislative action for the merger of the Board 
of Health and the Municipal Tuberculosis Sani- 
tarium is basically simple. Consolidation could be 
accomplished by amending the Glackin Act to pro- 
vide that, in cities of more than 500,000 popula- 
tion, the Board of Health shall exercise for such 
cities all the powers and duties assigned by statute 
to Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium Boards in 
other jurisdictions. 

Consolidation of the Board of Health and the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium raises the ques- 
tion of the effect of such action on the present 
system which provides a dedicated tax levy for the 
operation of the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium. 
Continued operation of the program can be financed 
in one of two ways: (1) continuation of the dedi- 
cated tax levy as at present, and (2) assigning 
the municipal tuberculosis control program to the 
corporate fund, thus raising revenue for its opera- 
tion in the same manner as funds are raised for 
other general municipal purposes. Continuation of 
the tax levy as at present, with its administration 
under the Board of Health, would have the prin- 
cipal advantage of assuring continuation of the 
program at something near its present level. Such 
a continuation would, of course, necessitate the 
keeping of accurate cost accounting records in 
order to properly distribute operating costs be- 
tween the two funds. Where activities overlap, as 
would be the case for example in the field nursing 
service, tuberculosis nursing costs would have to 
be separated from general public health nursing 
costs. As a practical matter it may not be wise to 
change the fund from a dedicated levy to the cor- 
porate fund levy. To do so would be a piecemeal 
application of sound revenue administration which 
would have no real bearing on Chicago's revenue 
structure when we consider the many millions of 
dollars in operating revenue the City uses and the 
multiplicity of general and special levies by which 
those funds are raised.

Continuation of the dedicated levy is unsound, 
however, in principle. Such levies violate sound 
principles of revenue administration on at least two 
counts: (1) they limit the ability of the City Coun- 
cil to determine city policies and programs and to 
control city expenditures through weighing the 
claims for funds of one department against the 
claims of another; and (2) agencies operating 
under dedicated funds are ordinarily less subject 
to pressures for efficiency and economy. 

A decision to consolidate the two agencies will 
make necessary some important changes in the 
organization of the Health Department. A possible 
plan of organization is shown in Chart A. This 
plan represents an effort to hold to a minimum the 
disruptive effects on the day-to-day operations of 
both existing agencies. It will be necessary, how- 
ever, to establish several new divisions, and some 
functions would need to be transferred in a few 
other cases. The new divisions to be set up are : 

1. The Division of Tuberculosis Control. This 
division would be headed by a Tuberculosis 
Control Officer, who should report directly to 
the President of the Board. He would have 
jurisdiction over all tuberculosis case-finding 
(x-ray surveys and the like) activities, the 
medical direction of the tuberculosis hospital, 
the collapse-therapy clinics, and laboratory 
and clinical research related to tuberculosis. 

2. The Division of Public Health Nursing. This 
division would be headed by a Public Health 
Nursing Director, who should report directly 
to the President of the Board. The Director 
would be responsible for developing and car- 
rying out a generalized public health nursing 
program, including field nursing related to 
tuberculosis. 

3. The Division of Hospital Management. The 
Hospital Manager in charge of this division 
should report directly to the President of the 
Board. The Manager would be responsible for 
the efficient operation of all nonmedical serv- 
ices of the Tuberculosis Hospital, its North 



Riverside branch, the Municipal Contagious 

Disease Hospital, the Isolation Hospital unit, 

and the Rapid Treatment Center, including 

food service, housekeeping, power plant 

operation, building and plant maintenance, 

grounds care, and related services. 

Two existing divisions in the Board of Health 

would be considerably affected by the . proposed 

plan. These are: 

1 1. The Division of Preventive Medicine would 
be relieved of responsibility for field nursing 
services, laboratory services, the drugs and 
biologies section, and nonmedical services at 
the Municipal Contagious Disease Hospital 
and the Rapid Treatment Center. Such an 
action would give the Director of Preventive 
Medicine a greater opportunity to devote his 
attention to developing and executing an 
effective program of preventive medicine. 
2. The laboratories section would be given the 
rank of a division, with the Director of Lab- 
oratories directly responsible to the President 
of the Board. The actual operation of the 
laboratories would not be greatly affected, 
even with the addition of the drugs and 
biologies section to the division. 
The Office of Personnel would not necessarily be 
affected by consolidation; it would appear, however, 
that that office could be considerably strengthened 
at any time the Board of Health wishes to make 
greater use of what is ordinarily an important staff 
service. 

No specific recommendations are made regarding 
the newly established Division of District Health 
Services. The present state of development of the 
district health service program precludes its hav- 
ing an immediate effect on plans for consolidation 
of the Department of Health and MTS. Tubercu- 
losis control work should be considered, along with 
all other facets of public health, in the determina- 
tion of the action to be taken by the Board of 
Health with respect to district health services in 
the future. 



January. 14, 1949 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



3677 



The other divisions of the Department of Health 
would be affected by the proposed consolidation 
only to the extent of absorbing the appropriate 
remaining functions now performed in MTS. 

Formal action to bring about the consolidation 
of the two agencies is only the first step in improv- 
ing the public health program. The heads of the 
various divisions will need to do a real planning 
and organizing job if the consolidation is to be 
effective. Combining the two nursing forces, for 
example, will make it necessary to train the field 
nurses now with MTS in the practices of gen- 
eralized public health nursing. At the same time 
the field nursing staff of the Department of Health 
will need to be trained in those aspects of field 
nursing which are specifically related to tubercu- 
losis. The Public Health Nursing Director will have 
the task of reconsidering the distribution of nurs- 
ing staff in all field districts in order to meet the 
requirements of the combined nursing program. 

Integration would make necessary some rear- 
rangement of office space and facilities, but this 
does not pose a serious problem. Early review of 
physical plant facilities and requirements, as well 
as the development of comprehensive operational 
and record-keeping procedures, is indicated how- 
ever, in connection with the developing pattern of 
district health offices. No problem would be created 
by integration in connection with employee pen- 
sions or retirement inasmuch as employment in 
either agency is considered city employment for 
annuity and benefit fund purposes. 

The consolidated agency will bring together two 
sizable organizations under one executive head; in 
order for that person to do an effective job of 
administering such a large organization it is essen- 
tial that he be provided with adequate staff assist- 
ance. Capable, trained, and experienced assistants 
can relieve the executive officer of a large volume 
of detail and thus permit him to give his attention 
to the more important administrative and policy 
problems which affect departmental operations.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 14, 1949 



City for relocation-housing purposes in short-term 
government securities. 

An examination of the Housing Authorities Act 
of 1934, as amended, the Housing Cooperation Law 
of 1937, as amended, and the act in relation to re- 
housing of persons residing in redevelopment proj- 
ects undertaken pursuant to the Blighted Areas 
Redevelopment Act of 1947 discloses that in none 
of the acts referred to is there any express or 
implied power in the housing authorities to invest 
surplus funds in government securities. 

Housing Authorities are created as municipal 
corporations exercising public and essential gov- 
ernmental functions (Sec. 8, Housing Authorities 
Act). They are autonomous governmental agencies 
and independent of the corporate authorities of 
other municipalities in the control of their property 
and funds granted and paid into the treasury of the 
housing authorities, subject, however, to the fol- 
lowing : 

1. In Chicago, the housing authority must sub- 
mit to the City Council statements of its financial 
condition, including operating receipts and dis- 
bursements at the close of each fiscal year (Sec. 
8, Housing Authorities Act). 

2. All projects are subject to the planning, 
zoning, sanitary and building laws, ordinances 
and regulations applicable to the locality in 
which the project is to be situated (id. Sec. 10). 

3. Agreements for the payment of service 
charges in lieu of taxes (id. Sec. 29; Housing 
Cooperation Law, Sec. 5d). 

4. Agreements relating to conveyance or lease 
of City property, dedication and vacation of 
streets, alleys and public grounds, grants or 
loans of money and numerous municipal services 
in aid of the performance of the functions of the 
housing authority (Housing Cooperation Law, 
Sec. 4). 

5. Approval of the sale or conveyance by the 
land clearance commission to the housing author- 
ity of property for public housing (Blighted 
Areas Redevelopment Act, Sec. 18). 

6. Approval of the acquisition of property in 
the city of Chicago (State Contribution Act of 
1947, Sec. 5). 

Certainly the City Council has no power to direct 
the Chicago Housing Authority to invest any funds 
in its possession earmarked for public housing 
projects or derived from the sale or transfer of 
property acquired by the Authority. 

There is, however, a provision in our State law 
which we believe is sufficient authority for the 
Chicago Housing Authority to invest in govern- 
ment securities surplus funds not immediately 
necessary for the purpose for which they are held 
by the Authority. Section 1 of An Act concerning 
municipal funds (111. Rev. Stat. 1947, Chap. 146 y 2 , 
par. 3.1, pp. 3357 and 3358) provides: 

"Every county, park district, sanitary district, 
or other municipal corporation, holding in its 
treasury funds which are set aside for use for 
particular purposes, but which are not immedi- 
ately necessary for those purposes, by ordinance, 
may use those funds, or any of them, in the pur- 
chase of *** municipal bonds issued by the *** 
municipal corporation, possessing the funds and 
representing an obligation and pledging the 
credit of that *** municipal corporation, or 
bonds and other interest bearing obligations of 
the United States or of the State of Illinois. All 
interest upon these bonds or obligations and all 
money paid in redemption of these bonds or 
obligations or realized from the sale thereof, if 
afterwards sold, shall at once be credited to and 



placed in the particular fund used to purchase 

the specified bonds or obligations." 
The Chicago Housing Authority is a municipal cor- 
poration within the meaning of the foregoing act. 

Although we believe there is no harm in a reso- 
lution of the City Council suggesting or requesting 
the investment of money donated by the City of 
Chicago until needed for the purpose for which the 
donation was made, the Authority may not be 
coerced to make such an investment. If the City 
had the right to order the Authority to invest its 
surplus funds it would have the power to direct 
the investment of the funds in specified municipal 
or federal bonds or notes. By complying with the 
order of the City Council the Chicago Housing 
Authority would be unlawfully avoiding a respon- 
sibility imposed upon the Authority by State law. 

Approval by the Mayor or the City Council is 
not necessary to enable the Authority to invest any 
of its funds, including money donated by the City. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) J. F. Grossman, 
First Assistant Corporation Counsel. 

Approved : 

Benj. S. Adamowski, 
Corporation Counsel. 



COMMITTEE ON JUDICIARY AND 
STATE LEGISLATION. 



Proposal to Restrict Slaughtering and Sale at 

Retail of Live Poultry and Other Live Fowl 

— Action on Committee's Recommendation 

Deferred. 

The Committee on Judiciary and State Legislation 
submitted the following report, which was, on request 
of Alderman Bohling and Alderman Lancaster, De- 
ferred for final action thereon to the next regular 
meeting : 

Chicago, January 3, 1949. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Judiciary and State Legisla- 
tion, to which were referred (September 5, 1946, 
page 6260) a proposed ordinance to amend Chapter 
95 of the Municipal Code of Chicago to restrict the 
slaughter and sale of poultry and other fowl to 
certain districts, and a proposed ordinance to 
license and regulate live-poultry establishments, 
begs leave to recommend that Your Honorable 
Body do pass the proposed substitute ordinance 
submitted herewith. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) N. J. Bohling, 

Chairman. 

The following is the substitute ordinance recom- 
mended in the foregoing committee report: 

Whereas, The handling and slaughtering of live 
poultry and other fowl, in and about retail food 
establishments, requires that such poultry and 
fowl be delivered in crates and other receptacles 
which are deposited upon the sidewalks of the City, 
and, when emptied, remain thereon for consider- 
able periods of time; and 

Whereas, The handling and slaughtering of live 
poultry and other fowl, in and about retail food 
establishments, requires that such poultry and

fowl be opened, cleaned and plucked, whereby the 
refuse, blood and feathers remain therein for con- 
siderable periods of time; and 

Whereas, This creates a nuisance and attracts 
rats and other vermin, causing health and other 
hazards ; 

Therefore, for the purpose of protecting the 
health and welfare of the people of Chicago from 
such unclean and insanitary conditions, in and 
about retail food establishments: 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. Chapter 95 of the Municipal Code of 
Chicago is amended by adding thereto a new sec- 
tion as follows: 

Poultry 
95-21.1. It shall be unlawful for any person, 
firm, corporation or other business association 
to keep, sell or offer for sale at retail any live 
poultry or other live fowl, or to slaughter or 
cause to be slaughtered for sale at retail any 
live poultry or other live fowl in any retail food 
establishment or building, structure or store- 
room auxiliary to or used in connection there- 
with anywhere in the City of Chicago within 
200 feet -(including the width across any public 
highways, streets and alleys) of any structure or 
building which is used in whole or in part for 
residence or dwelling purposes, restaurants, 
wholesale or retail food establishments, public 
or private schools, churches, hospitals, play- 
grounds, parks or public or private institutions. 
Section 2. This ordinance shall be in full force 
and effect from and after its passage and due pub- 
lication. 

A motion by Alderman Merryman to place the pro- 
posed substitute ordinance on file was ruled out of 
order on the point of order raised by Alderman Keane 
and Alderman Lancaster that the committee report 
had already been deferred for final action thereon to 
the next regular meeting at the request of two alder- 
men present, as required by law. 

A motion by Alderman Carey (seconded by Alder- 
man Geisler) to recommit the report of the Committee 
on Judiciary and State Legislation for the purpose of 
granting a public hearing to persons who would be 
adversely affected by the proposed ordinance if passed, 
was likewise ruled out of order on the same point of 
order as that raised by Alderman Keane and Alder- 
man Lancaster against the motion to place on file. 



COMMITTEE ON LICENSE. 



License Tax Imposed on Carters, and Sections of 

Municipal Code Repealed (Relating to Public 

Carters and Furniture Movers). 

The Committee on License submitted a report rec- 
ommending that the City Council do pass a proposed

shall be unlawful for any person to drive a cart 
which does not bear such license emblem. 

163-4. Any person violating any of the provi- 
sions of this chapter shall be fined not less than 
fifty dollars nor more than two hundred dollars 
for each offense and each day such violation shall 
continue shall be regarded as a separate offense. 
Section 2. Chapter 163 entitled "Public Carters" 

as it has heretofore appeared in the Municipal Code 

of Chicago is hereby repealed. 

Section 3. Chapter 132, entitled "Furniture 

Movers" of the Municipal Code of Chicago, is 

hereby repealed. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force and

Proposals for Grants of Privileges in Public Ways 

— Action on Committee's Recommendations 

Deferred. 

Chicago, January 6, 1949. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Local Industries, Streets and

which include a summary and records of operations 
for the months of October, November and Decem-

ordinance as the area bounded by the South Branch

Buren Street and N. Wells Street, and that the area

Committee be appointed to foster and promote the 
Civic Center project, and that bills be drafted for the 
creation of a Civic Center Commission with certain 
specified powers. — Referred to the Committee on Plan- 
ning. 



Ineffectiveness of Local Option Ordinances of 
Annexed Municipalities. 

Also the following communication addressed to the 
City Council under date of January 20, 1949, signed 
by Martin H. Foss, Assistant Corporation Counsel, 
which was Ordered Published and Placed on File: 

"By an opinion handed down January 19, 1949, 
copy of which is forwarded herewith, the Supreme 
Court of Illinois has upheld the city's contention 
that local option ordinances adopted by municipali- 
ties later annexed to the City of Chicago, are not 
in force and effect at the present time by virtue 
of section 18 of the Annexation Act of 1889. 

In the litigation plaintiffs claimed that certain 
territory in the Englewood district of Chicago was 
prohibited territory because it had been made anti- 
saloon territory by an ordinance passed by the 
Town of Lake in the year 1889, before that town 
was annexed to the City of Chicago, and that the 
ordinance was still in force as its existence had 
been perpetuated by section 18 of the Annexation 
Act, Which governed the annexation of the town to 
the city. 

Section 18, subject to certain provisos, provided 
that when a part or the whole of an incorporated 
town, village, or city is annexed to another city, 
village or incorporated town, and prior to such an- 
nexation an ordinance was in force prohibiting the 
issuing of licenses to keep dramshops within the 
territory so annexed, or any part thereof, then 
such ordinance would continue in full force and 
effect, notwithstanding such annexation. 



The Supreme Court holds that both the ordinance 
and section 18 were repealed by the Prohibition Act 
of 1921 and were not revived when said act was 
repealed; also that the rights of cities and villages 
are now subject to the state law in respect to pro- 
hibition and regulation of the sale of alcoholic bev- 
erages as contained in the Liquor Control Act of 
1934, which act is a complete revision of, and in- 
tended as a substitue for, prior laws upon the same 
subject and repeals all existing laws upon that 
subject. 

Had the court upheld plaintiffs' contention, not 
only would the area covered by the old Town of 
Lake ordinance have become dry territory until 
changed by referendum by the majority vote of the 
voters of the territory annexed, voting as a whole 
on the proposition, but the indirect effect of the 
decision would have resulted in reviving or con- 
tinuing in force other local option ordinances of 
other municipalities passed prior to their annexa- 
tion to the city. Such an adverse decision would 
have resulted in confusion in the matter of the en- 
forcement of the Liquor Control Act of 1934." 



Recommendations for Variations of Application of 

Zoning Ordinance Provisions to Particular 

Premises— Referred. 

The City Clerk presented a communication from the 
Board of Appeals under date of January 24, 1949,

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways and

$20,000.00 of the allotment made from the Motor 
Fuel Tax! Fund for acquisition of right-of-way for 
the Northwest Route of the Comprehensive Super- 
highway System, for the sole purpose of paying 
interest charges which may accrue between date

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's rec-

Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, Carey, Cohen,

The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order : 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 23, 1948 

To the Honorable Chairman 
and Members of the Committee 
on Finance of the City Council 
of the City of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — The City is now acquiring by con- 
demnation properties between Harrison Street and 
Hubbard Street necessary for right of way for the 
Northwest Route of the Comprehensive Superhigh- 
way System. Under the law, immediately after the 



judgment order is entered, interest charges on the 
award accrue until payment is made. 

Inasmuch as the time necessary forthe State to 
prepare and forward the funds varies, we are un- 
able to estimate the interest charges beforehand. 
It is therefore considered desirable that an addi- 
tional amount of $20,000.00 from our Motor Fuel 
Tax Fund allotment for right of way for the North- 
west Route be forwarded by the State of Illinois, 
Division of Highways, and made available solely 
for the purpose of paying interest charges on this 
route. The allotment for right-of-way for the 
Northwest Route has been approved by the City 
Council and State of Illinois. However, the funds 
are forwarded only when the amount for a parcel 
or parcels is determined and a specific request is 
made. 

It is recommended that your committee recom- 
mend to the City Council that it authorize the Com- 
missioner of Subways and Superhighways to re- 
quest the amount of $20,000.00 from the State of 
Illinois, Division of Highways, and upon receipt 
disburse such funds for the purpose hereinabove 
mentioned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock 

Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways. 



Stipulated Settlements Approved (Acquisition of 
Property Required for West Route of Com- 
prehensive Superhighway System). 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending that the following proposed order sub- 
mitted therewith do pass: 

Ordered, That the recommendation of the Com- 
missioner of Subways and Superhighways, con-

MISCELLANEOUS REPORTS— COMMITTEE ON 
JUDICIARY AND STATE LEGISLATION. 

Proposals for Enactment of Legislation to In- 
clude Permanent Residents of Hotels within 
Scope of Controlled Housing Units — Action 
on Committee's Recommendation Deferred. 

The Committee on Judiciary and State Legislation 
submitted the following report, which was, on request 
of Alderman Keane and Alderman Ringa, Deferred 
for final action thereon to the next regular meeting: 

Chicago, January 26, 1949. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Judiciary and State Legisla- 
tion, having had under consideration a proposed 
resolution (referred December 29, 1948, page 3543) 
to request the enactment of legislation to remove 
the discrimination against permanent hotel resi- 
dents by including said class of tenants within the 
scope of the controlled housing units, begs leave 
to recommend that Your Honorable Body do adopt 
the two proposed substitute resolutions submitted 
herewith. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) N. J. Bohling, 

Chairman. 

The following are the proposed resolutions sub- 
mitted with the foregoing committee report: 

Whereas, Existing Federal and State Legislation 
imposing rent controls upon residential renting ac- 
commodations affords inadequate protection to the 
many thousands of Chicago citizens who are per- 
manent hotel residents; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago has heretofore recognized the extreme hard- 
ships suffered by this group of tenants and at- 
tempted in the year 1947 to alleviate these condi- 
tions by enacting a rent-control ordinance under 
apparent authority conferred by an Act of the 
General Assembly of Illinois; this ordinance af- 
forded but temporary relief, the Supreme Court 
of the State of Illinois having declared said ordi- 
nance invalid for the reason that the enabling act 
excluded from the definition of "housing accom- 
modations" hotels for the accommodation of per- 
manent residents as well as for transient guests; 
and 

Whereas, Permanent hotel residents are still in 
dire need of the same protection conferred by law 
upon tenants of other housing accommodations and 



3752 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 28, 1949 



the same considerations of pubilc health, safety and 
welfare are involved; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

That this Council respectfully urges the Con- 
gress in any new rent-control legislation it enacts, 
to make clear that permanent residents of hotels 
are afforded the same protection from unwarranted 
and abnormal increases in rent as that given to 
tenants in other types of residential occupancy. 

The City Clerk is hereby directed to transmit a 
copy of this resolution to the President of the 
Senate and to the Speaker of the House of Repre- 
sentatives. 

Whereas, Existing Federal and State Legisla- 
tion imposing rent controls upon residential-renting 
accommodations affords inadequate protection to 
the many thousands of Chicago citizens, who are 
permanent hotel residents ; and 

Whereas, The City Council of Chicago has here- 
tofore recognized the extreme hardships suffered 
by this group of tenants and attempted in the year 
1947 to alleviate these conditions by passing a 
rent-control ordinance covering permanent hotel 
residents, which provided merely temporary relief 
because the Supreme Court of the State of Illinois 
declared said ordinance exceeded the authority of 
the City Council; and 

Whereas, Permanent hotel tenants are still in 
dire need of the same protection conferred by law 
upon tenants of other housing accommodations and 
the same considerations of public health, safety 
and v/elfare are involved; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

That this Council respectfully requests the Gen- 
eral Assembly of the State of Illinois to remove 
the discrimination against permanent hotel resi- 
dents by including said class of tenants within 
the scope of the controlled-housing units as defined 
in the "Community Emergency Housing Rent Law," 
enacted by the 65th General Assembly; to extend 
the termination date of said Act, and to provide 
a method by which local communities which have 
adopted the said Act may be provided with funds 
for the proper enforcement of its provisions. 

The City Clerk is hereby directed to send a copy 
of this preamble and resolution to the Governor, 
the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of 
the House of Representatives, of the State of 
Illinois. 

A motion by Alderman Freeman to suspend the 
rules temporarily, to permit immediate action on the 
proposed resolutions, was ruled out of order by the 
Chair on the ground that the Council was required by 
statute, on request of any two aldermen present, to 
defer the committee report for final action thereon 
to the next regular meeting.

A proposed order to direct the Superintendent 
of Maps to approve a plat of resubdivision of property 
on the southwesterly side of S. Van Vlissingen Road 
between E. 99th and E. 102nd Streets. — Referred to 
the Committee on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys. 



Presented by 
ALDERMAN WAGNER (14th Ward) : 

Action Directed Seeking Injunction to Prevent Collec- 
tion, or to Compel Impounding, of Increased 
Telephone Rates. 

A proposed ordinance reading as follows: 

Whereas : The City of Chicago is faced with the 
possibility that the Illinois Commerce Commission 
may grant a rate increase to the Illinois Bell Tele- 
phone Company within a very short date. Such 
action by the Commerce Commission would be 
based on evidence presented by the Company in 
a hearing which has been practically an ex parte 
proceeding. The Company seeks an increase of 
$34,080,000.00. Such an increase would raise the 
initial rate on business 'phones from $5.50 to $7.50 
per month and raise the rate on some of the addi- 
tional messages almost 100%. The rate on resi- 
dential 'phones would be increased in some in- 
stances as high as 30%. 



The operating Company is presently earning all 
Of its operating expenses and a substantial profit 
of several millions of dollars annually. The in- 
crease which was put into effect for the year 1948 
by the order of the Commission in December of 
1947 has not yet been fully evaluated. The Com- 
pany itself does not know how much increased 
profit was produced on an annual basis under the 
rate increase. In view of these facts there appears 
to be no authority under the law for the granting 
of a temporary increase in rates to the Company 
by the Commission. 

In addition to this, many other questions merit 
exhaustive investigation. It appears that discrimi- 
nation exists between rates for telephone services 
in the Chicago area both local and long distance. 
Evidence presented indicates that a toll call from 
Chicago to St. Louis, Missouri, is cheaper than a 
toll call from Chicago to Springfield, Illinois. An 
Evergreen Park subscriber pays $5.95 for 250 calls 
to a dozen or more exchanges in Chicago while a 
Chicago subscriber pays $13.32 for calls to the 
same exchanges. 

Serious questions have been raised as to the 
propriety of a reversing entry in the depreciation 
account of $15,000,000. This represents a refund 
ordered by the Supreme Court in the 5c coin box 
case. This entry may have, in effect, increased the 
Company's plant investment in a like amount. 

The pension charges in the amount of approxi- 
mately $9,000,000 annually . against operating ex- 
pense borne by rates alone present a question 
which should be studied. 

New plant acquisitions, particularly in reference 
to expense of television and long distance service, 
should be properly examined. 

The anti-trust division of the Department of 
Justice has within the last two weeks filed a com- 
plaint in the District Court of the United States 
for the District of New Jersey against American 
Telephone and Telegraph Co., the parent company, 
alleging conspiracies in violation of the Sherman 
Act. The seventy-two-page complaint charges acts 
which "tend to defeat the basic purpose of public 
regulation of rates". It charges that: 

"The difference between the apparent and the 

real costs of telephone service represents hidden 

profits which are beyond the reach of public reg- 
ulation." 

The City of Chicago is the real effective body 
that stands between the imposition of unjust rates 
and the paying public. 

The hearings before the Commission on the 
temporary rate phase of the present case have 
been concluded. The Commission has two motions 
upon which it must act : 

1. The City's motion for a complete exhaustive 
investigation by the Commission ; and 

2. The Company's motion for a temporary order 
granting the increase. 

In the event the Commission should grant addi- 
tional increases before the basic facts have been 
thoroughly investigated, the City of Chicago should 
act to prevent their imposition. To do this the 
City should petition to enjoin collection of the in- 
crease, if possible. 

In the alternative the City should and must 
take steps to protect subscribers entitled to re- 
funds should the rate be proven unreasonable and 
illegal by appropriate legal action to impound the 
increases if necessary. 

The City of Chicago should certainly discharge 
this duty to its citizens. 

Now, therefore,

nition of the traditional friendship which has al- 
ways existed between the peoples of our two na- 
tions, have sent to the United States a "Merci 
Train," containing documents, relics, paintings, 
works of art, and other valuable objects; and 

Whereas, one section of the "Merci Train" has 
brought to Chicago a boxcar load of gifts for the 
people of this city and the State of Illinois ;

Council hereby go on record in an expression of 
thanks and deepest appreciation to the people of
